Each of Martin’s works is a study in layers, symbolising the depth of richness beneath each visual story.

He uses a unique proprietary technique to create paintings that are alive with texture and relief.

First he applies a pumice gel medium to his canvas and then etches a scene into the medium with a chopstick! 

Once dried hard, he then builds up each visual story in layers of acrylic and oil. The signature iridescence seen in much of his work comes from the use of specially-created metallic paints.

His completed works, with their vivid and contrasting hues, become a bold celebration of colour and energy.
